  • Olive Oil- just rub it in and let it set. Your hair will absorb the nutrients and it works wonders for skin too

  • you probably need a good haircut, and to lay off the hot tools/blowdryers/flat irons, too. if your hair is dry to the point of being brittle, its damaged, and there is no product, from a bottle or your cupboards, that will return it to normal. they will only 'mask' the issue.

  • Keratin treatments... or Brazilian Blowouts can do AMAZING things. The only problem is, if your hair is curly and you want it to stay that way, you're kind of screwed. Keratin leaves the hair moisturized, smooth, and totally glossy. The treatment isn't cheap but worth it to anyone facing unendng hair foes.

  • I am a true believer in JOICO KPAK HAIR REPAIR you get it at salons only & and its pricey but worth it. Put some on the areas only that you need & and leave on for as long as ya can like maybe when you are doing your house cleaning etc. wear a cap & let your body heat activate it even more to seal your cuticle. I use it and it works good I also have the KPAK conditioner, love these products. I would also try the hot olive oil treatment at home. GL
